In this article in The Daily Signal, the authors describe the case on the Supreme Courts docket, Grundy v United States. In it, Grundy argues that Congress has wrongly delegated its power to legislate to the Executive Branch in the application of SORNA.
In Gundy, the court will review Congress’ delegation of authority to the attorney general to decide whether and how to retroactively apply the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act of 2006, also known as SORNA.
SORNA established a comprehensive system of registering sex offenders and requires offenders to register in every jurisdiction where they live, work, or go to school. It replaced a patchwork system at the state level that allowed convicted sex offenders to slip through the gaps in state sex offender registries when they crossed state lines.
